5-Minute Microwave Nutella® Cake

5-Minute Microwave Nutella® Cake

Kitty

"As a poor starving college student, this recipe is one of my favorites. It is quick, cheap, and 1-portion size. I actually make about 6 servings of the dry ingredients ahead of time, then add the liquid later. The dry is about 11 tablespoons. A whipping cream or ice cream topping completes this heavenly dessert. Can substitute peanut butter for hazelnut spread, but cut the portion to 1 1/2 tablespoon. You can increase cocoa powder and hazelnut spread to 3 tablespoons each and substitute almond extract for vanilla if desired."

This is pretty good, but I'm going to have to experiment with the cook time a little before I find it delicious! I cooked it the full 2 1/2 min., and I think that was too long. It reminded me o...

This is the first mug recipe that I have tried that tastes like actual cake. It is pretty yummy and definitely satisfies a chocolate cake craving. I would maybe use a bit less salt in the future...
